Ditch the Diet Cocktail

The holiday season goes out with a big fat bang, while each New Year begins with magically shrunken clothing and swift proclamations of diet readiness.  Toss the diet thought process and go with thirst quenching drinks that tantalize the taste buds with nary a thought to low calorie.  Cran-Blurry Cooler gives versatility to the palate with daytime non-alcoholic spin that rocks on into the evening with your choice of vodka or rum splash.

Place ice in wine goblet or stemless cocktail glass. Add light cranberry juice to 2/3 full. Top with 1/3 part diet blueberry pomegranate juice. Add squeezed juice of quartered lime. Garnish with a few frozen cranberries. Sip to your heart’s desire.  Notation: Turn the Mocktail into a lower calorie cocktail by adding 1 ounce of vodka or rum. Go wild by making it blueberry, raspberry or citrus flavored vodka or rum! Fun!
